The Love a Pit Foundation is a local animal rescue organization who provides rehabilitation and rehoming services for abandoned, abused, and neglected animals. Since they are an all-volunteer organization, foster homes and monetary donations are always needed. Love a Pit will be joining us at Pagan Pride Day with adoptable dogs and collecting donations of sturdy dog toys (e.g., Nylabones, Kongs) and pet supply gift cards.
Our theme for the 2017 Pagan Pride Day event is Casting a Wider Circle: Our Voice in Activism. We are reaching out to members of the spiritual community to assist us in cleansing & empowering the space of the New Orleans Healing Center before the opening ritual. The goal is to set the tone for a day of coming together, learning from those with differing beliefs, and being empowered to make a difference within our community. If you'd like to participate in the asperging, please check in at the information booth by 9:45am. Let's get the day kicked off on the right foot!
Hang out with Celia, our headliner at this year's Pagan Pride Day, for an intimate concert in the home of one of our Board members. Enjoy a drink and some chill time at the start of a crazy weekend. If you're not sure you'll make it to her stage show at Cafe Istanbul on PPD, this is the opportunity to see the one-of-a-kind song stylings of Celia!
Celia has been described as "A cross between an Earthy Enya, Joan Baez, and Tina Fey." She dishes up the most delicious concoction of the silly and sacred. With powerful, heart-felt vocals and wacky comedic improvisations, the audience never knows what will happen with Celia on stage.
$5-10 cash donation will be collected at the event. The show will be held at 2722 St. Ann Street in New Orleans.

Check out the schedule to plan out your day.
With the unpredictable weather as of late, the Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Project has decided to move the 2017 Pagan Pride Day to the New Orleans Healing Center. This will provide plenty of indoor space, which allows the event to take place rain or shine. We are also excited to return to the Healing Center for the event's fifth anniversary, as this was the location of the first Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Day in 2013.
The New Orleans Healing Center is located at 2372 St. Claude Ave, across from the St. Roch Market.
Please join us on Sunday, October 29 from 10am to 6pm for a great day of community fellowship!
